chief says the regime in syria is approaching collapse and president assad as ally, russia, admits the rebels could defeat the sir ran regime. moscow is preparing to evacuate russians citizens if necessary. this marks the first time in the civil war that killed more than 40,000 people that russia suggested president assad could actually lose. moscow repeatedly blocked security council measure, the sir ran regime supports iran, hamas, hezbollah and the third biggest stockpile of chemical weapons. johnathan hunt with the news. there seems to be a growing consensus the end could be near for president assad. >> certainly is. the russian position is particularly interesting and significant. it would appear to amount on the part of president assad as greatest ally over the last 18 months that the end is nigh, the rebels are making ground every day, making gains every day. it's an acceptance from the russians in a sense that they have to abandon their old ally and make new friends in syria if they want to maintain any influence after assad has gone. as you said, the nato chief adding to t
of state hillary clinton held a news conference. keep in mind, russia here, really, resisted the efforts to speed the departure of the syrian leader al assad. so jill, do we know, was syria's chemical weapons, was that discussed here in this conversation between the secretary of state and the foreign minister of russia? >> reporter: well, yes. initially. there are actually two meetings between secretary clinton and the foreign minister. and you know, russia actually does -- this is one area where they do agree. russia is very much opposed to any type of use of chemical weapons and in fact secretary clinton thanked him for speaking about that which she did in brussels just yesterday, talking about that. although, brooke, you know, you have to say that the russians next breath say that they have raised that issue, in fact, with bashar al assad. the president of syria. and he assures them that there's no use intended and it is not a problem and, so, you kind of have two messages coming from the russians but you would have to say they're very much opposed to that and a lot of concern. >> so
an approximation. >> this week the secretary of state hillary clinton, she met with russia's foreign minister and the u.n. special envoy to syria. as you know, russia has blocked action against al assad at the u.n., but some have speculate that had moscow may be considering a different aprove. i mean, is russia stopping the u.s., do you think, from going into syria? >> i think the russians are beginning to realize that this problem simply cannot be ignored, and their passive stance on it simply doesn't provide for any constructive solution, so i hope that they will work with us on this, and i think the more international consensus we have on what is to be done, the less likely is the danger that the removal of the regime will result in the fragmentation of syria all together and regional conflicts erupting. that is the real danger, and that's what people should be concentrating on. >> you know, some have made the comparison that getting involved with syria or in syria is similar to us getting involved in libya and taking action against libya. do you see it that way? >> not quite. i supported
. the betting money is that the three countries that you hear about the most are russia, venezuela and iran. all countries that have been his allies, although the russians clearly are losing some of their support for assad given this recent crisis with the chemical weapons. so those are the countries you hear about. now, the assessment is that assad isn't ready to go. the u.s. says it hasn't seen anything in term of concrete asylum offers. maybe assad's commanders think the boss is getting cold feet and might dessert them. >> barbara starr, thank you very much. >>> "out front" next, 57% of americans say they would vote for hillary clinton in four years. think about recent elections have gone. that would be an incredible mandate. what does she say about iran? >>> and john mcafee still on the run after his neighbor was found murdered. martin savidge tracked him down and he is "outfront" next. c-max, you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-ma
to be very significant. >> yeah it, certainly is. because russia remember has been president bashar assad's greatest ally and protecter. if they are changing their tone now, accepting that the rebels are getting closer and closer to assad's power center in damascus through the violence that we have seen intensifying over the last couple of weeks, it signifies that the russians are realizing that their greatest friend in the middle east is about to be out of power and they better pretty quickly start making some new friends among the rebel opposition. officials say they are simply pleased to see the russians finally facing up to reality, listen. >> we agree that assad will not be a part of syrians future. we have noted as the media has the progress that the opposition has been making. we still believe that for the sake of the syrian people assad ought to leave now. >> now the questions remain of course how long does president assad -- can president assad hold on? how desperate does he get while he does that and in that desperation, what kind of extreme measures might he take? what kind of
